Part reconstruction, Pattern matching, Surface registration, Image analysis


This paper introduces a method for automatic archaeological fragment reconstruction, based on the pattern matching techniques originally developed in graphic computing and image analysis fields. The method is embodied in a software tool that provides the bests matches in a set of bi-dimensional archaeological fragments.
To ensure the efficiency of the results, it has been developed a theoretical study that allows solving the stated problem, ensuring the correction of results, and with a very competitive execution times.
